Party animals hired Airbnb home for sex and drug orgy

egtmedia59A married couple who let out their beautifully furnished home for the weekend via the homestay accommodation site Airbnb returned to find the entire house trashed and stinking, with food and garbage strewn everywhere and wads of condoms floating in the toilet.

The damage amazed police. Partygoers appear to have battled in the hallways with squeeze bottles of tomato sauce and mayonnaise. They ransacked the house, stuffed roast chicken thighs into family shoes, stubbed out cigarettes on furniture, covered floors in broken glass, and strewed discarded panties and bras around. Alcohol, vomit and semen were also evident and an overwhelming smell of marijuana pervaded everything.

Authorities have concluded a “drug-induced orgy” was held on the premises in the Canadian city of Calgary, Alberta.

A video clip of the damage, with police inspecting it, has been placed on YouTube and can be viewed here:

Homeowner Star King told CBC News: “We came and wished the home was burnt down to ashes. It would have felt way better.”

Just hours after they handed the keys to the renters (who they thought consisted of a quiet man in his 40s, visiting the city with three adult friends for a family wedding) neighbours said a party bus and other vehicles rolled up to the door. Over 100 wild revellers spilled out and lurched into the home.

Fights soon broke out in the front yard while a loud and drunken orgy took place inside.

In a statement sent to Canadian website Road Warrior Voices, Airbnb spokesman Jakob Kerr said:

“We have banned this guest from Airbnb, and our Trust and Safety team will offer its full assistance to law enforcement in any investigation of this incident.

“We have been in very close contact with these hosts and we are working quickly to reimburse them under our $1 Million Host Guarantee, which covers a host’s property in the rare event of damages. Over 35 million guests have stayed on Airbnb, and property damage is extremely rare.”

The homeowners, perhaps surprisingly, are sticking with Airbnb, which they have used many times before.

“This isn’t the Airbnb experience,” one said. “We happen to be that one in a million that it happens to.”

Police investigations continue.
